According to reports, Mauricio Pochettino has made Janssen one of his top targets, as he seeks cover for Harry Kane during he summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old is one of the most sought after young strikers in Europe, and Janssen admits that he is keen to make a step up from AZ Alkmaar.

“I want to make a step, that is clear. But there is no white smoke just now,” Janssen said.

“England? We will see. Maybe something will happen in the holidays. I will take my phone with me anyway.”

Kane is currently the only recognised striker in Tottenham’s senior squad.

The 22-year-old managed to stay fit for the entirety of last season, and he did not seem to suffer with fatigue, but Spurs still suffered from not having a secondary striker in some matches.

Janssen netted 30 goals in 43 matches last campaign for club and country, and he developed a reputation as one of the most exciting talents in the Eredivisie.

Janssen is one of a number of players who have already been linked with Tottenham this summer, with the North London side set to offer Pochettino a big transfer budget to bolster his squad.
